Practical Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain

By: Ganesh Prasad Kumble

Overview of this book

AI and blockchain are two emerging technologies catalyzing the pace of enterprise innovation. With this book, you’ll understand both technologies and converge them to solve real-world challenges. This AI blockchain book is divided into three sections. The first section covers the fundamentals of blockchain, AI, and affiliated technologies, where you’ll learn to differentiate between the various implementations of blockchains and AI with the help of examples. The second section takes you through domain-specific applications of AI and blockchain. You’ll understand the basics of decentralized databases and file systems and connect the dots between AI and blockchain before exploring products and solutions that use them together. You’ll then discover applications of AI techniques in crypto trading. In the third section, you’ll be introduced to the DIApp design pattern and compare it with the DApp design pattern. The book also highlights unique aspects of SDLC (software development lifecycle) when building a DIApp, shows you how to implement a sample contact tracing application, and delves into the future of AI with blockchain. By the end of this book, you’ll have developed the skills you need to converge AI and blockchain technologies to build smart solutions using the DIApp design pattern.

Applying AI and blockchain to other domains

Although the majority of the solutions today are commercially deployed across supply chains and financial services, many more emerging solutions are being applied across various domains. We will observe such solutions using AI and blockchain to solve the current problems in businesses and unlock their true potential.

Now, let's explore the products and solutions used in the knowledge management domain, powered either by blockchain or AI.

Applying AI and blockchain to knowledge management

Most of you, including myself, gained exposure to the internet through open source knowledge bases such as Wikipedia. Things are moving fast in this generation and some content in this book could also possibly become outdated by the time it reaches your hands or devices. In this rapid world of changes, agility is very important in maintaining the accuracy of any documented knowledge base on the internet. This is a huge problem if the knowledge base consists...
